MOSCOW — The former mayor of Moscow who was fired by Russia's president said in an interview published Monday that he plans to form his own political movement.

Yuri Luzhkov, who was dismissed by President Dmitry Medvedev last week after 18 years in office, said in the weekly New Times interview that his movement would seek to develop democracy in Russia.

He said he wouldn't appeal his ouster because he believes Russia's courts wouldn't dare to defy the Kremlin.
